During the House debate on an Iraq pullout date:
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California countered: "Stay the course, I don't think so Mr. President. It's time to face the facts."
She called for a new direction in the conflict. "The war in Iraq has been a mistake. I say, a grotesque mistake." -- CNN.com
No, Ms. Pelosi, a grotesque mistake is when, as leader of the free world, you get caught spewing sperm on a white house intern and decide to toss a few hundred missiles at Iraq to divert attention from your infidelity.
Fighting to free an oppressed people from a mass murderer is never a mistake.
